There is a growing fear among homeowners that home improvement companies will steal their home’s secrets and make them the targets of fraud and theft.
A report from the Insurance Information Institute (III) this month found that of the roughly 11,000 home improvement business transactions that were flagged in 2016, only 9% resulted in fraudulent activity.
The other 99% of businesses were deemed legitimate.
A spokesperson for III told Newsweek that they received about a quarter of complaints from homeowners about home improvement contractor companies and were in the process of reviewing them.
However, they cautioned that “there is no evidence that the fraud is widespread.”
In some states, home improvement contracting is legal if you pay them a reasonable fee.
According to the California Department of Finance and Revenue, home improvements are considered business activities and not subject to the same laws and regulations that businesses are.
But some home improvement experts, including those from the Institute for Home Improvement, believe that if a home is to be inspected, it should be inspected for security and security measures.
For instance, the institute claims that home inspection firms are required to conduct random home inspections.
If you’re concerned about your home being broken into, you might want to ask your landlord to check it out.
But if your home is inspected and you are found to have been the victim of fraud or theft, you may be out of luck.
Home inspectors are required by state law to conduct annual inspections and require each home to be checked for the presence of a security device or other security device that could be used to commit a crime.
That means the inspectors would be checking your home at least twice per year.
However,, they also have the option to inspect any home that they feel it’s not safe to inspect.
And you could end up in court if your security devices are found in violation of the law.
According to the Institute, there are two types of home inspections: random inspections, in which inspectors conduct a random, unannounced visit to the home; and periodic inspections, where inspectors conduct regular inspections of the home.
“There are very few states that require home inspection inspections, which are very expensive,” said James Stokley, a senior director at III.
“The states that do require home inspections generally require inspections to be conducted every six months.”
“We don’t know whether there is a large-scale scam involving home inspections, but it is something to watch,” said Stokie.
“There are a lot of home inspection providers who don’t actually inspect their homes.”
When it comes to home inspection, Stokian said, you should always ask for a “home inspection bill” or a “billing plan.”
It’s not uncommon for home improvement firms to advertise on websites like Home Improvement Experts and Home Improvement Sites.
They often include instructions on how to obtain your home inspection license, as well as a list of “professional” and “certified” contractors who will perform the home inspection.
In order to get a home inspection in your state, you need to provide proof of income.
But the institute said you should also check your state’s Department of Financial Services website to see if the state offers financial services or loans to home improvement professionals.
If you have any questions about home inspections or security devices, you can contact the Insurance Info Institute, the home improvement industry’s trade association.
